A load of old spherical objects

One mans meat is another mans poison. This certainly seems to be the case when it comes to exterior household decor. On another thread, where the 50 worst things about Ireland were being discussed, Stone Eagles appeared to be a frequent object of derision and scorn. I actually thought that there were dozens of the poor critters between Rostrevor and Belfast, and was quite surprised to find only 2. On the other hand, most stone caps appear to be balls (or to be more feminine, spherical objects)
As a neophyte, I am not sure how we go about this, but I wanted to see if anyone wanted to submit either their favourite balls, eagles or other stone capping object. I’ve included an eagle eyed friend here, and there are more on the Flickr page linkunder Parades and Icons.

Please send yours to me, and I will consider awarding a suitable prize for the best submission. Rory, I expect to see a photo of your plastic budgies from your squat in London.

    Get them listed before someone demolishes them.

    Our neighbours have the biggest balls in the park. They’re very proud of them – cleaned every week and lit up at night.

    One night not so long ago took a wrong turning up behind the Tesco at Abbey centre, ended up in some good forsaken estate, but in the middle was a garden with a pensioner sitting in a rocking chair. The garden was packed full of the eerie blue lights which I think are solar powered. Weird vision which belonged in a horror film but everyone to their own.
